TV in kids’ room may show your elite status to rest. For me, it is showcasing example of mindless careless parenting by arrogant neo-rich.

With their brains, sleep patterns, and eyes still developing, children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable to the sleep-disrupting effects of screen time.


Children Uniquely Vulnerable to Sleep Disruption From Screens, New Paper Suggests

Their eyes are not fully developed! Even if it is innocent cartoon, it is against the development cycle!

Biological, neurological and environmental factors all play a role:

Because their eyes are not fully developed, children are more sensitive than adults to the impact of light on the internal body clock, the paper notes.

“Light is our brain clock’s primary timekeeper,” LeBourgeois says, explaining that when light hits the retina in the eye in the evening hours it suppresses the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, delaying sleepiness and pushing back the timing of the body clock. “We know younger individuals have larger pupils, and their lenses are more transparent, so their exposure and sensitivity to that light is even greater than in older individuals.”

“Through the young eyes of a child, exposure to a bright blue screen in the hours before bedtime is the perfect storm for both sleep and circadian disruption,” LeBourgeois says.

The “psychological stimulation” of digital media – whether it’s exposure to violent media or texting with friends – can also sabotage sleep by boosting cognitive arousal, the authors note.

LeBourgeois offers these recommendations for parents:

Limit children’s media use in the hour before bedtime.
Turn off all electronic media devices, including yours, at bedtime, and charge them in a central location outside bedrooms.
Remove all electronic media from your child or teen’s bedroom, including TVs, video games, computers, tablets, and cell phones.

What to talk about those parents who subscribe their children to Computer, Mobile, Video games, as early as age of 5 or 6? What to talk about schools who teach by screens from kindergarten?

Is there any relation among Food, Mind, Body, Child Development and Sexual assault crimes?

1.A) Researches show that fast food/Toxic Food/GM food/Chemical milk triggers early puberty (Precocious puberty)
1.B) Researches show that excessive screen entertainment (TV/Movies/Video Games/Mobiles) accelerate puberty.
2) Researches also show that precocious puberty triggers violence, drugs use and excessive sexual activities in children.
3) Researches also show that effects of precocious puberty on delinquency are direct, without any other factors involved (like social class, family and race).

Precocious puberty tangles growing brain in sex related imaginings very early in life. This leads to potential development deficit. For more insights, this is worth researching subject.

Overuse of screen entertainment/interaction (TV/Movies/Video Games/Mobiles) accelerate puberty. Light and radiation from television screens and possibly even computer screens disturbs the production of melatonin, believed to be the hormone that can prevent early onset of puberty. With accelerated puberty, you reduce your child’s childhood and make them dumb adults, burden for society!

1) Early puberty is believed to put girls at higher risk of sexual abuse
2) Precocious puberty triggers violence, drugs use and excessive sexual activities in children.
3) Early-Onset Puberty Puts Girls at Risk of Medical Problems like breast cancer
4) Early sexual maturation in boys can be accompanied by increased aggressiveness due to the surge of hormones that affect them. Because they appear older than their peers, pubescent boys may face increased social pressure to conform to adult norms; society may view them as more emotionally advanced, despite the fact that their cognitive and social development may lag behind their appearance.
5) Studies have shown that early maturing boys are more likely to be sexually active and are more likely to participate in risky behaviors.

On the contrary, CEOs of Silicon Valley IT companies, send their children to technology-free schools!

We reported this sometime back:

Increasing Eye diseases? High fat-High Sugar diet and Microbes

So, few parent readers responded : “Once in a while, it is ok!”

“Everything in limit is fine? You must occasionally allow kids to eat chocolates. And if you are not doing so, your parenting style is against the growth of kids in modern times!”

Let us count few obvious occasions.

1) 40 peers @ school – 40 chocolates days
2) Add 20 neighborhood friends. 60 chocolate days per year.
3) Add 20 family and friends birthdays. 80 chocolate days per year.
4) Add 50 casual offering by parents, grandparents, relatives.

130 chocolate days per year. Is this limit? 35% is good limit?

Btw, as per this news, over 40% Irish parents give their children sweets daily.

Over 40% of Irish parents give their children sweets daily

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/over-40-of-irish-parents-give-their-children-sweets-daily-1.2640765

More than 40 per cent of Irish parents are giving their children unhealthy treats like chocolate, crisps and sweets more than once a day.

The new research from Safefood, the food safety promotion board, published on Monday showed the majority of parents (73 per cent) did not consider these types of foods as treats.

Dr Cliodhna Foley-Nolan, director of human health and nutrition at Safefood, said an over consumption of these treats was a “serious threat” to children’s health.

“As parents, we need to break the bad habits of giving these every day as it’s now become the norm and not really a ‘treat’ anymore,” she said.

“ Parents are really finding this difficult and these products are simply empty calories.”

Children aged five and under were the age group given the most daily “treats” at 50 per cent.
